Through the Looking Glass Thursday evenings, beginning October 24th
When we look through the mirror, we can envision new paths to a joy-filled life. Physical health and radiance is an inside job. It is our decision to claim it. In this powerful class, we will delve into the inner process of holistic healing (mind, body, and spirit). On our inward journey, we will explore ways to release old wounds and step through the doorway of fear-based emotions. Moving deeper, we will gently release blockages that no longer serve us. Tools for our journey will include: mindfulness, positive visualization, breath work, journaling, pattern-breaking techniques, inner listening, affirmative prayer, Reiki & Flower Remedies. Autumn is a great time to reflect on the past and prepare for a new beginning.
Lead by: Deborah Lee, Holistic Health Practitioner, and Ph.D.
Terri Hanlin, Reiki Master, and Practitioner
When: Thursday evenings, Oct. 25th; Nov 1, 8 & 15; 6-8:30PM
Fee: $90—Includes: 10 hours, personal flower remedy, Reiki attunement and class notebook.

Herb of the Month Class – October 30: Valerian
Valerian (Valerian Officinalis) – This lovely plant is another “official” healing herb, honored by Linnaeus when he developed the botanical system of nomenclature. Valerian offers relief, primarily as nervine. The herb has a stimulating and warming effect on the body; thus providing help for irritability, anxiety, and nervousness. This hypotensive action can also aid with hypertension and stress-related heart problems (which are more frequent than we may realize). Valerian root is especially useful for intestinal tension leading to gas, cramps, and constipation. Understanding the ancient medicinal knowledge of hot and cold action helps one better know how to use an herb. For example, if a person has too much blood flow and activity in the head and brain, Valerian may not help for sleep and relaxation because it is heat-producing. Lemon balm would be more helpful.
